Afternoon Links: Scott Disick, in the Role He Was Born to Play, Promotes Yeezus

In his latest Yeezus promotional projection, Kanye West re-creates the Huey Lewis scene from American Psycho with Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban (nice casting, brah). Take a look at the garbled footage and then read about Kanye’s Kafkaesque imprisonment in the cell of his own celebrity: “As an artist, and as a critic of his own work, this causes a hunger artist intense dissatisfaction. Because he alone sees the direct connection between what’s going on inside of him and the work this leads him to produce. He feels like he is the only one who can really appreciate what a genius he is. Only he knows that his performance, which astounds the public, is a mediocre, effortless and compromised one.”
